Custom 1911's are works of art. I've been lucky enough to get to play with a few pieces by the top 1911 pistolsmiths around. The worksmanship and attention to detail is just amazing.

I will have one someday

I only shot that kinda volume for a few years, even reloading everything the cost is just staggering. Not to mention the time. These days I'm lucky to shoot a couple hundred rounds a month.

And some other fun guns

I need to take some time next weekend and get those sights adjusted on the x5 and Vcomp. Both guns are sweet shooters.

Picked up a mossberg 500 on sale black Friday very happy with it overall but I think I would like to add on a different fore-end/pump. Any suggestions on good aftermarket pumps?
Gonna re-ask this cause I know there is alot of good knowledge in this thread.

I assume you are talking about the stock and foregrip/handguard? It honestly depends on what you want to do with it and what it came with.

I am going to assume it is a home defense type setup. You probably don't want to hear this, but I would just leave it alone. You probably want to put some sort of pistol grip stock on it and a bulky foregrip, all they do is create additional parts to snag and limit your firing positions. If you must swap it out, get something from Hogue or Speedfeed, stay away from the cheap Chinese crap.

I am not a pump guy, but the mossberg 500's just flat out work. I would take what you were going to spend on stocks and buy a nice light and mount, and toss a fiber optic type bead on the vent rib and call it good.

Too many ppl put 5 lbs of "tactical" crap on their guns and completely ruin them.

Spent the weekend in a tree with this. TC Contender with SSK 30-30 barrel. Shoots like a dream and is fun to shoot, but it has some kick. Probably the most accurate firearm I own.

When I first got into handgun hunting I had one (blue not stainless) in 7-30 waters. Loved it. It always suprises a lot of people how accurate handguns are with stiff barrels. I had for a while a Savage Striker bolt action pistol in .300 WSM and it was one of the most accurate guns I owned at the time even considering some of my custom rifles. I used to take it to the range and shoot gongs at 300 yards and people would always stop and look at it like it was a miracle or something lol.

I have been playing musical houses over the last few years. Finally got all my boxes of books in one place and have been going thru them. Looking thru my reloading books and shooting journals I really ran thru some powder at one point. The one that suprised me the most was between 1994 and 1997 I was on a 5 man collection team (we switched off, 1 driver, 2 spotters, 2 shooters in a high rack vehicle at night with a spotlight) with a research permit from the state and in total we killed just under 1,000 deer in that time period, I handloaded all of the ammo we shot....all on a single stage press.

What came on it? I have one of the these on my Mossberg that I keep in my duck boat as a buckup gun for myself, clients, and occasional boat paddle/push pole and it works well. If it's for home defense I have no idea. It's easy to work the action even with heavy gloves on.

It's been a great gun, paid about $140 for it about 15 years ago new. It was black and a friend dipped it for me. It's really has taken a beating over the years and still works great.

Very nice!! I have one in 7mm TCU, always wanted a 7x30 waters barrel. A buddy had a 16" 45-70 barrel, that was a freakin cannon.

Yeah a .300 wsm out of a 14" barrel gets your attention in the blast department, one of the reasons I got rid of it. Even while hunting if you shot it off the ground on a bipod the dirt/dust cloud was similar to a blackpowder shot and you really couldn't have someone next to you even hunting unless they had on full ear protection.

If you are willing to go metal frame, look at any variant of the CZ-75. They aren't as as we'll marketed in the states, but they are amazing pistols.
Hmm I might be sold on a CZ 75. It looks good and seems to be a lot of positive reviews. Here's a review vid where the guy does some impressive shooting with just iron sights.

http://youtu.be/WgDhURHa0OQ

It was also in Black Ops 1. Hmm I wonder if gun manufacturers see a significant bump in sales when a model gets featured in a video game? I asked a guy at the local gun range and he said they do get a decent amount of inquiries on guns because someone saw it in Call of Duty or Battlefield.

I got a TC with the 45/410 barrel and love it when I am out ridding in the mountains. I can shoot grouse with the 410 shell and other shit with the 45 shells. Also with the 410 shells you can get the buck shot so it has like 5 large pellets in it and will knock that shit out of what over you shoot.

Debating on picking up a springfield xd9 for $400. Any thoughts on them? This one would be the service (4 inch) model

I put my thoughts on the XD's about halfway up the thread. I personally prefer Glocks and M&Ps, but the XD's are good pistols.

I think I'm going to hold off and get a glock instead. The only thing I don't like about them is the grip. Any thoughts for how to fix/what to buy?

I'm looking at something in 9mm as a range gun. I really like the feel of the p226 and 1911's.

I also can't stand the glock ergos. Feels like I'm holding a 2x4.

Alternatives: M&P 9, Walther PPQ, HK P30
